Oxford DioceseA prayer for the appointment of the new Bishop of Oxford

Gracious Lord and shepherd of your pilgrim Church, We bless you and praise you that you have gathered us, from across this Diocese, to be one flock, within one fold. By your Spirit, Give us wisdom, courage and faith as we seek a faithful pastor who will sustain us on the journey, feed us with word and sacrament and nurture our ‘Living Faith’ inspiring us to follow you ever more closely. This we ask in the name of Jesus, our loving, faithful shepherd who is the beginning and the end of all that we are and seek and do. Amen untitled
